All legal power and authority are vested by statute in a bipartisan six-member Board of Regents (three members from each major political party), who are appointed by the Governor of the State and confirmed by the State Senate. The Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education serves as an ex officio member. The appointed members serve six-year staggered terms and are eligible for reappointment.
